    Hello Yep me too. It's been 2 years since my plates & screws removed and I still have pain. No swelling. Just some days stiffness and pain. Rub it as much as you can. I don't take pain pills anymore. I have a nerve pill that's helps. But I don't take them, because II don't want to be on pills! And I just pray to heal more! Bless you and thank you!
